Take a leisurely drive up to the Tableland district justoutside Murgon. You can enjoy a picnic at the neat and well maintained Kapernick Park which overlooks the South Burnett valley. On a clear day you can see the Bunya Mountains to the south-west. Easily accessible by car and a nice option for those who might find the walk up Boat Mountain too difficult.
Best to access the Kapernick Lookout picnic area from the Murgon – Gayndah Road.
Explore Jack Smith Scrub
If you visit in spring, you will see the creamy flowers of the wonga vine which twists around the tree trunks. Camping is not allowed in the park. Jack Smith donated this small patch of softwood scrub in hilly country north-west of Murgon. Jack Smith Regional Park preserves a valuable remnant of the once vast dry rainforests that have since been largely cleared for agriculture.
